I own a castle on the beach
it really is quite grand.
It has every thing I need
except its built with sand.

I used to place importance
on the little things I had.
But now I own a castle..so,
I must not be doing bad.

The view is quite outstanding
and the ocean so serene.
I own a beach front kingdom
and I'm the only queen.

The money here is plentiful.
Sand dollars all around.
No visits to the sand bank
you can find it on the ground.

I'm gonna spend my life here
its the perfect place to be.
You'll always know just where I am.
In my castle by the sea.

I like this.

You have the right to live your way
Yes, even in a castle
And anyone who says you don't
Must be a real a.......

I've missed you, Lucie!

Who the heck are you!?!?!? I'm not sure we've met before, but I really liked this poem of yours - you little disappearing brat! So now I know where you've been hiding out - probably kidnapped some poor "prince" to hold hostage in there with ya, huh? Well, gees Louise, I'm not even sure what to say to you !! It's been so long since we've talked! Just a minute, I have to sit down, I still can't believe I'm seeing this post with your name on it....hang on.....I'm feeling faint.....

Lucie! Where have you been? To the sea? Well it's time to get back here and get writing! I loved this....what a great attitude to have...I would love to live in a castle like yours by the sea....(not sure if my ISP will take sand dollars though!)...

Lucie -
I like your sand castle.
It just sounds lovely ...
I'd like to come and visit
your kingdom by the sea.

I hope that there are
sand dollars lying about ...
but I worry what you do
when the tide's coming IN
and then going OUT.

Will you castle stand
the ravages of the tide?
I sure hope that it's true
so you can there abide.

It just dawned on me,
I had a thought so remote ...
why of course it will stand,
you surrounded it with a moat !

I sure do love Lucie's style
She writes a verse with hidden smile
For in the rhyme I think I felt
She knew our hearts would surely melt
And though I've not been introduced
Your poem seem to have produced
Some open arms awaiting you
By those who love your poetry too

Wonerful poem
